Re: Converting Embedded Graphics to Reference


If you do not have Illustrator (as proposed below), you can use Acrobat

I posted a rather verbose description of that process recently, so I won't
suck up bandwith by doing it again.  However, if anybody needs that info, I
can post it again or email it individually.
